The President also reviewed efforts made to consolidate the ceasefire in Gaza in order to prevent the recurrence of the brutal crimes committed by the Israeli occupation in its aggression on the Strip.

The President reviewed efforts to expedite rebuilding of what the Israeli aggression destroyed, which led to the displacement of tens of thousands of citizens from their homes as a result of the destruction, in addition to the destruction of infrastructure, including health, educational, social and economic institutions. He also discussed with the participants the Israeli ongoing aggression against the neighborhoods of Jerusalem and lands in the occupied West Bank, in application of the colonial settlement policy.
